To be honest, I haven't played any other RE except RE5, which is fun BTW. But, I think RE should go back to its root. At least that's my impression of its early games. It should be more survival, horror, adventure game.
The protagonist should be weak average private investigator instead of some over the top action hero. The zombie should be slower. The area should be smaller to like a castle with lots of locked doors or blocked paths. Only use classic weapons. And less actions, more quiet creepy rooms, and seeing zombie is more frightening when they slowly come to bite the weak protagonist. It is more about atomsphere, not about cool action sequences. And there could be lots of intense action sequences RELATIVE to the character. For example, facing zombie dog would be actually scary due to its faster speed, and 5 of them would create a massive challenge. And just escape from something could be a challenge to the character because it would have stamina issues instead of someone who can rush for 10 miles.
what do you think?
